Acai Pulp Oil – Derived from the fruit with the most potent antioxidants!
Derived from the pulp of Acai Berries, Acai Pulp oil has been used for centuries by the natives of Brazil due to their incredible and incomparable health and nutrient properties. Acai berries are gathered together by hand from protected areas of the Amazon Rainforest and cold-pressed immediately to achieve the purest oil possible. Blueberries were once though to have the highest antioxidant count of all the berries, that is until the Acai berry was discovered. Acai berry contains the highest ORAC value (highest per unit value of antioxidant power) of any other edible fruit in the world.
In Brazil, this incredible super fruit is nicknamed the “Beauty Berry.” The reason for the name is because acai berries contain a vast array of compounds that make the body both look and feel great from the inside out.
